Berkshire Theatre Group

About Berkshire Theatre Group

Berkshire Theatre Group was created in 2010 by the merger of two of Berkshire County’s oldest cultural organizations, Berkshire Theatre Festival founded in 1928 in Stockbridge and The Colonial Theatre built in 1903 in Pittsfield. One of the largest and most exciting arts organizations in the area, BTG oversees the development, production and presentation of theatre, music and the performing arts on multiple indoor and outdoor stages and spaces on 8 acres.

Our Pittsfield location is home to our oldest and newest stages: The Colonial Theatre and The Garage.

THE COLONIAL THEATRE in Pittsfield (780 seats) was built in 1903 and re-opened in 2006, following a $21 million restoration. This stage boasts pristine acoustics, classic gilded age architecture and state of the art technical systems and hosts family entertainment, comedy, live music and more year round.

Located in the lobby of the Colonial is THE GARAGE. Its name pays homage to its former owner, Berkshire Auto Co. This newly developed venue, complete with stage, lights, and sound system is our dedicated space for local and regional music performers, storytellers and comedians.

Our campus in Stockbridge, which is home to Berkshire Theatre Festival, presents work at two venues: The Fitzpatrick Main Stage and The Unicorn Theatre.

THE FITZPATRICK MAIN STAGE (314 seats), founded in 1928, is the ultimate "summer theatre." This iconic building, designed by Stanford White, helped establish the Berkshires as a cultural destination. Each summer, the finest in classical theatre and world premieres are produced on our historic stage.

THE UNICORN THEATRE (122 seats), a theatrical jewel, is the home for new and emerging artists, and challenging and thoughtful work.
